It is hard to find a poor high ranking official in China and of the few who don't have overt wealth well they seem to have exceptionally successful families!Most Chinese also think all the best scams were invented in the West and have just been imported to China during the last few decades.

The Chinese banks (state owned) were owed a lot of money by Proview.State owned enterprises (or part state owned) enterprises are obliged to pay dividends which end up in both state and party coffers.If you were a senior member of the party and a representative of the Government in China, what outcome would you be pushing for??

This has now been removed to the detriment of the people these idiots were trying to protect.   As for the crowds queuing up outside, that isn't unusual but I haven't been over to that side of town this week but might...
The UI of Chrome is pretty good but all of it's advantages are negated for me because it can't be used as the default browser.   Do I want this to change? No way, given Googles performance over cookies I wouldn't trust them to have high level access to my phone.
